WH's Conway on Epstein’s Death: Trump Wants Everything Investigated

Epstein: How he died and what it means for his accusers Epstein death triggers flurry of conspiracy theories

The person wasn't authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. The medical examiner's office in Manhattan confirmed Epstein's death.

Epstein, whose circle of friends and acquaintances included US President Donald Trump, ex-US President Bill Clinton and Britain's Prince Andrew, died on Saturday while awaiting trial on sex trafficking and conspiracy charges unsealed last month.

Guards on Jeffrey Epstein's unit were working extreme overtime shifts to make up for staffing shortages the night of his apparent suicide, a person familiar with the jail's operations tells The Associated Press. He had pleaded not guilty.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons and Attorney General Bill Barr said Epstein died in an "apparent suicide" while in federal custody. The deal was actually executed before President Barack Obama took office, under former President George W. Bush.

Clinton spokesman Angel Ureña said the former president "knows nothing about the bad crimes Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to in Florida some years ago, or those with which he has been recently charged in NY". "Staff is down tremendously", Palmer said.

Several of Epstein's accusers said Saturday that they're disappointed that the financier won't have to face them in court or serve a long prison sentence if convicted. On July 24, Epstein was reportedly found injured and semi-conscious in his prison cell with marks on his neck. Some online commentators described it as a "murder attempt".

Trump, who rose to conservative prominence by falsely claiming Obama wasn't born in the US, retweeted unsubstantiated claims about Epstein's death.

Brown said it's important to look at what happened with Epstein's suicide but also to keep the focus on the victims and on the case.

Conway said, "I think the president just wants everything to be investigated".

She added, "Trying to connect the president to this monster from years ago, where they're seen dancing in a video versus other people who were actively, I suppose, flying around with this monster on his island, which was known as pedophile Island, perhaps there's a public interest in knowing more about that".

No foul play is suspected in Epstein's death, a federal official told CNN.

Epstein's removal from suicide watch would have been approved by both the warden of the jail and the facility's chief psychologist, said Jack Donson, a former prison official who worked for the Bureau of Prisons for more than two decades.

"And Donald Trump knows it", Ureña tweeted.

"Who was watching? What does camera show?".

Prosecutors may target cronies who were set to testify against Jeffrey Epstein before his death - as the FBI investigates new claims by more than 200 women who say they were sexually assaulted by the wealthy pedophile, law-enforcement officials said Sunday.

"Mr. Epstein's death raises serious questions that must be answered", Barr said in a statement.

The alleged suicide of Epstein was an "impossibility," according to Rep. Al Green (D-Texas).

Epstein faced similar accusations in Florida in 2007 but signed a plea deal that year with Miami prosecutors allowing him to avoid federal charges and plead guilty to lesser state prostitution charges. The reporting and new attention led to the resignation of Trump administration Labor Secretary Alex Acosta, who negotiated the plea agreement when he was the USA attorney in Miami.
